    default highlight color is black instead of yellow

    Asked by cqcamptx on March 14, 2012 at 06:36 AM

    Sirs, I solved my problem by disabling Highlight Effect in preferences, but just in case you can reproduce this (or other users are seeing the same thing), on a form cloned yesterday morning 2012-03-13, the "yellow" was coming out solid black on selected fields. I checked the original form (which was made a year or two ago) and it was still yellow. Dan

    Hi, To change the color of the hightlight effect, you can use the "Inject Custom CSS" feature on the same Preferences screen. Enter this code there:


    background-color: #FFFFFF;


    You can change the FFFFFF to your desired color. You can refer to this site for the html color codes.

    Just remove the code below on your form's injected CSS Codes and re-enable the highlight effect to restore back you form's background when active to yellow:


    .form-line-active {





    -ms-filter: "progid:DXImageTransform.Microsoft.gradient(startColorstr=#7f646464,endColorstr=#7f646464)";


    To figure out where to remove that code, please follow this guide: http://www.jotform.com/help/117-How-to-Inject-Custom-CSS-Codes

    Hope this helps. Thanks.
